I keep planning on doing a favourite beauty items every month and next thing you know it is the end of the following month.

So my first favourite is from Cocoa Brown Tan, I have the 1 Hour Tan Mousse in Dark, Normal and Lovely Legs.


I used the Lovely Legs tan a few weeks ago as a very last minute tanning decision and stuck it on my arms, yeah I know it is meant to be for legs but sure it was an extra challenge for it ūüôā ¬†When I sprayed the tan on first I was like oh god it is orange, but once you rub it in it comes out really nice and it is very easy to blend. Here is a picture of the tan on one arm, I love a bit of colour! (Ignore my hairy arms)


I used the 1 Hour Tan Mousse in Dark for a wedding recently, I had the normal version of this before and just didn’t get the colour I wanted from one go. ¬†I decided to give the dark a chance and I love it, I left it on overnight and it came out really well!! ¬†The two things I love about this tan is that it doesn’t have any smell and the best thing, it looks really natural!! ¬†Also as it is a mousse it is so easy to put on, goodbye streaks!!

My next favourite is the Magnitone Lucid Cleansing & Exfoliation Brush, it is so good!  I am using it with my own Clarins cleanser and I use it about two to three times a week. There are two settings on it, I use the lighter setting so it is a bit more gentle on my skin. It also gives a warning every 20seconds to move to a different section of your face and turns off after one minute. My favourite thing about it is that you can use it in the shower!! This is so handy so I can forget worrying about getting cleanser in my hair.


Like everybody seems to be blogging about the Botanics range from Boots. I have been using the micellar water for about 6months now and I love it,it literally melts away your makeup. I previously posted about this here. The product this month that I tried is the Radiance Balm, it is the only one I have ever used so I can’t compare it to the other brands.

It gives your skin a subtle glow and this comes through your foundation. I have heard of other bloggers mixing it with your foundation. I found my foundation went on a lot better and smoother, and even used less foundation then normal. It is definitely worth a purchase and Boots have it on offer a lot. Just to warn you it can be pretty hard to find in store though, it is always out of stock!!

I got a new face cream at the Into the West Blogger Network event in May from Boots, the No7 Early Defence Cream.

It is a light cream and normally I don’t like light creams because I don’t feel like they don’t absorb as good as the thicker creams.¬†This cream absorbs really well and my skin does feel amazing after using it, I am using it about a month now and combined with the Magnitone Lucid my skin feels great as they both work great together. ¬†One thing that is putting me slightly off buying this cream again is that I have very sensitive eyes and I feel that the scent is making them water a lot (but this could also be linked to hayfever). ¬†However I definitely will be looking into the No7 range from Boots and see if there is other creams that might be more suitable for me.

That is a few of my favourite products that I have used over the past month and wanted to share with everybody!
